Privilege And My Pleasure
Author: Lesley Voth

My Brother and his wife went off on a trip
I hope they realize that not like New Zealand you need to tip

They are off to Europe for about 3 months or more
Exciting for them a great adventure in store

England, Scotland, France, Turkey and Spain
I hope they get great weather, plenty of sunshine and no rain

So while they are away, to my Mothers place next month I will stay
She is now going 96 young, memory at times goes a little astray

So for two months in New Zealand I will be looking after my Mom
Good for her, she loves a wine and she is partial to a little coke and rum

It is time that I enjoy as it is now a precious treasure
They say we only have so many breaths on this earth, she only has a few to measure
So I can always say time spent with her is all my privilege and my pleasure
